First Time New Registration for Interlibrary Loan Lending

If you are an ECU student, faculty, or staff, or a K-12 school in eastern North Carolina, click here.

If you have access to the OCLC Resource Sharing system, please submit requests to us using OCLC library code ERE. Otherwise, you can create an account directly with us by first creating an account with our ILL management software, ILLiad.

To create an account, complete the following registration form using your Web browser. Registration has three purposes:

  • Entering your organization's contact information into the ILLiad system means that you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  • Having your e-mail and regular mail addresses on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library.
  • By specifying a Username and Password of your choosing, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review the list of items you have requested in the past.
  • About your organization's Username and Password

    During registration, you will be asked to choose a Username and Password. You will use this Username and Password when logging on to the ILLiad system in the future.

    Choose anything you like, such as your name, full email address, or any alphanumeric code that you will remember.
    Choose anything you like. We recommend that you follow good security practice and choose a password that is different from those you use to access other systems. ILLiad will encrypt your password, so it will remain secure. Only you will know your password. If you forget your password, it can be reset.
